I am not sure what is about me, but I am the kind of guy that can never just build a plain old birdhouse. Too funny.
I used reclaimed picture frame molding on this one, some of which is over 100 years old.
I also built a second, interchangeable roof for it. That way the bride has a choice after the wedding is over. She can keep it with the slotted roof as an indoor vignette accessory. Or change the roof over to the one that does not have the card slot and use it outdoors as an over the top, country french birdhouse.
I also left a small space above the heart shaped doorway to make room for an engraved plate, just in case a new bride would like it personalized.
The antique picture frame molding that I used for the roof top is incredibly detailed.
I love the porch columns and the trim that wraps around the side of the house. It took a lot of extra materials to get the look I was going for. But I think it was worth it in the end.
Hope you enjoyed my little wedding box birdhouse. If you know of a bride who might like it, I have it for sale on Etsy. I have only one of these available though.
